A Birthday Surprise, the look of shock on people faces and the joyful response we get at the end of their ride. Yes, making people happy and sharing the experience is as much fun for us as it is for you.

“Fun and exciting experience for first-timers :)”
Reviewed 22 May 2014

We were well looked after, got lots of information about the surroundings by our drivers, we weren't expecting that. We thought we would just be getting a visual tour. The drivers also gave us info on great places to see and things to do whIle we were In Melbourne so we really appreciated that. Overall it was a very enjoyable experience for someone who's never been on a motorcycle. I would highly recommend it and it's a fantastic way to see this beautiful city! Happy riding! Thanks guys :)

One of our primary aims whenever we take someone out for a ride, is to arm them with information that enhance their visit to Melbourne. Making it an enjoyable experience is important, ensuring have the best time in Melbourne requires that they find out about all that this great city has to offer. That's why going for a Harley Ride on the day you arrive Melbourne, not on the day you are leaving is so important. Many has been the time we have pointed something out to someone, and they lamented tha they weren't going to have time to see it because it was their last day.

Yes, that's what we do. If only Harley Davidson new how much publicity work we do on their behalf, I sure that they would give us more recognition. Unfortunately, they barely know we exist and as such we have no affiliation with them. Yes, this is the perfect gift for anyone who has ever harboured a desire to own a Harley Davidson. And in an hour its pretty amazing how much we get to talk about with out passengers - as Trevor nows knows :)

“So good i did it twice”
Reviewed 27 March 2014

Joined John for a once in a life time trip down to the 12 Apostles and it is by far the best way to experience the great ocean road. I enjoyed it so much i book a tour round Melbourne to celebrate my last week in he city. First time on a Harley and John was very friendly and knowledgeable. Telling me all about the city and the great ocean road. A must do!

Thankyou for your kind words Rachael. You are our confirmation, that the experience is better than most anticipate or expect. We're glad we were able to share it with you and as I recall you were very keen to come back for a repeat after the first ride.

“Brian's Christmas Ride”
Reviewed 6 February 2014

The Harley ride was thoroughly enjoyable. John was very thoughtful and reassuring - especially as I am a pensioner, and had recently hurt my back. The ride was very comfortable, and exciting, and everything I hoped it would be. My Harley fantasy is fulfilled. Many thanks.

Yes, riding on the back of a Harley Davidson is extremely comfortable and nothing like what most people expect it to be like. In fact I would say that the suspension on a Harley Davidson is actually better than most cars (believe it or not!). For those reading this, Brian almost didn't come out for this ride and was seriously thinking of giving it to another family member. It was only after a lengthy talk with John that we persuaded him to come for the ride. And we were right... : )
